Substance Use Health and Wellness

If you struggle with addiction and want to stop using, or use more safely, Codman’s Substance Use Health and Wellness providers can help. We have physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, and behavioral health counselors who have extensive experience in the field.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

We offer medication-assisted treatment for addiction (pills and monthly injections) for opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms. We also prescribe Vivitrol (pills or once monthly injections) for alcohol and opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Counseling/Therapy and Groups

Patients often benefit from talking about life situations with counselors. Our behavioral health providers are ready to help you reach your goals. Codman knows that those struggling with addiction often benefit from the support and community of others who deal with the same issue(s). We offer groups for men and women that are staffed and facilitated by experts in the field.

Frequently Asked Questions

Patient statements are issued on a weekly basis for any new patient responsibilities that have been identified within the previous week. For accounts with balances less than $25.00, additional statements are issued every five weeks. For accounts with balances of $25.00 or more, if the patient has not paid the balance by the time the next statement is due, the account is referred to our reminder agency, which then begins a series of letters and calls reminding them that their balance is overdue.  No additional statements are sent out.
